The Invasion Reviews

December 12, 2015
As straight-ahead, propulsive, reptilian-brain action, it "works" as often as not. But it's unworthy to stand with its predecessors.
January 24, 2012
Even with its flaws The Invasion is still eerie, provocative and a solid showcase for Kidman.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
March 27, 2011
The Invasion is too solidly crafted to be genuinely bad film, but it completely fails to grip as a thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
July 6, 2010
There are some nice shocks to be had, but not enough to stop viewers from falling asleep, which is ironic considering that staying awake is an essential plot point for Kidman's character.

As ridiculous as The Invasion gets, its competent acting, fast pace, and campy B-movie vibe keep you weirdly transfixed against your better judgment.

Shoddy and soulless
October 6, 2008
The aliens make it so plainly obvious to their intentions that it'd be ridiculous not to notice what was happening with their landing on Earth...

August 27, 2008
Taken as a more popcorn-y sci-fi flick with a cool look, a tense, creepy feel, and uncommonly handsome leads giving above-average-for-the-genre performances, however, The Invasion is perfectly entertaining.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

There are worse ways to spend an hour and a half than staring mindlessly at a movie's impossibly beautiful cast, but there are plenty of better ones as well.
July 22, 2008
The Invasion is the fourth and most recent big screen adaptation of Jack Finney's 1955 science fiction novel The Body Snatchers, and hopefully it will be the last.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
July 14, 2008
Fails to live up to its own aspirations, undermined by misguided attempts to enliven the action with car wrecks and explosions.
April 19, 2008
This has to be the lamest alien invasion movie since the killer tomatoes attacked.
April 10, 2008
The incredibly erratic structure - undoubtedly a result of the notorious reshoots - ultimately dulls the impact of the movie's overtly effective attributes...

March 3, 2008
Treat yourself to the Donald Sutherland version, plus, his perm is more frightening than anything that happens in Invasion.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
February 28, 2008
Somewhere in The Invasion is a good movie scratching to get out.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 30, 2008
The Invasion saps all the spirit out of what once was a classic alien saga.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 17, 2008
The Invasion moves in too many conventional directions, its unwillingness to take chances proving its ultimate downfall.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 16, 2008
Reflete a impassividade de seus vilões, já que desenvolve sua narrativa potencialmente tensa de maneira insossa e pouco envolvente.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 8, 2007
The film as a whole is a failure, but additionally, it's also a mess of unedited or badly edited scenes.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
November 5, 2007
Depressing proof of how Hollywood movies have just grown worse since the 1970's . . .
